I’ve recently entered the world of Twitter and with it the world of Christian Mom Bloggers.  There’s a lot of them out there and I never knew I’d find them on Twitter.  This has also opened up the world of giveaways to the Sanchez house.  I’ve entered many in the past month and won several.  I’ve won a beautiful pitcher, a crayon roll, baby toys (the above pic is of Caleb playing with his favorite giveaway win), a baby shirt, and a year long membership to a site that helps with planning and offering resources for teaching children about the bible.  Yesterday I won something special.  
I had asked my husband for a certain necklace for Christmas. He got me something else that I totally love instead. I entered a giveaway yesterday and what did I win?  A gift certificate that will completely cover the cost of the necklace I really wanted. When my husband got home and I told him (I was SUPER excited), He smiled and said he wasn’t surprised. He had been praying that God would provide for everything I desired! Amazing how God (and my hubby) care about even the smallest details.  My happiness and wellbeing is important to God.  He’s paying attention and in subtle and very personal ways He shows His great love for me.  
. . . for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.
Matthew 6:8

"And why do you worry about clothes? See how the lilies of the field grow. They do not labor or spin.  Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these.  If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?
Matthew 6:28-30
This post is appropriately linked up to The Rusted Chain’s “Fingerprint Friday”  Thanks for the giveaway!  How cool is it that you were part of my seeing God’s fingerprint on my life this week.

Check out the necklace I’m going to order. 


  1. Oh Christy! I'm so happy for you! And as much as I've laughed about wanting to win giveaways, I LOVE that you have been winning and that Sammy has been praying for your desires to be fulfilled. How sweet! Love you, girl. (Off to pray for a coffeemaker...desire or necessity? Hmmm, 6 wk old baby... hehehe)

  2. You're gonna make that necklace look beautiful! :)

  3. Isn't winning fun?! :) Thank you Christy!
